Good News & Bad News

Where oh where do I begin...?

I guess I'll start with the good news first.  Who doesn't like good news, right?

Something exciting should be happening between now and the end of July barring no unexpected events that would change that.  What you ask?  Well, I'm going to keep that a secret.  Partly because I think it will be fun to keep you all in suspense until the official announcement can be made.  And partly because I'm concerned what y'all will think of me.

Gosh, that makes it sound bad doesn't it?

Oh well, it is what it is and it's staying a secret!

Now to the bad news :(

These past two weeks have been crazy to say the least but that's no excuse for letting myself do what I normally do.  What I'm saying is just because there was a bunch of stuff going on in my life doesn't mean I should have let myself revert back to having Mountain Dew on a daily basis.  I shouldn't have let myself forget about my goal to get back on track with exercise and eating better.

Life happens, on a daily basis, so I need to learn to deal with what life throws at me in a way that doesn't result in feeling badly about myself.  I need to learn to deal with what life throws at me in a way that I don't use it as an excuse to do what I normally do.  I need to learn to live my life the way I want, and need, to live it.

There!  I've said it...again.  I'm starting over, or however you want to say it, again.

Blogging consistently is something I need to do.  Even during the tough, crappy, blah times that I go through in life.  Why?  Because I'm not accountable to myself.  I feel more guilt and want to change my ways for the next day more when I put it out in the blogging world for all to read than I do when only I know what I've done.

Is that weird?  Is that bad?

Shouldn't being accountable to myself be enough?  Or is that something that comes with time?

Maybe some day being accountable to myself will be enough...

Do what you have to do to feel good about yourself. If blogging about whatever you did makes you want to change for the better, maybe it's a good idea. But blogging isn't always going to be there so you need to also be accountable for yourself. We all do.

I agree, do what makes you feel good girl. If blogging is your jive-go for it.

Oh and I cannot wait to hear about your big news!

I know I can be accountable to myself, I've done it in the past. It's just this initial getting started phase that I'm much more laid back with myself and don't push to workout and eat healthy like I should.

I don't know that blogging is necessarily my jive but I enjoy and appreciate the support I get from the blogging community.

I can't wait to tell you about the big news!!

You will be finding out what the "big" surprise is soon, like this weekend probably. You don't have much longer to wait!

I must be portraying myself the way I want to be be seen because currently I am not motivated and have no self-control haha! I'll be working on that though!

Thanks! I like this layout too. So much color! Makes me happy.
